Question about 1992 Dodge Ram 350
A 92 Dodge truck is an excellent vehicle to buy if you want to learn mechanics. I didn't know anything about truck engines when I first bought it, but soon had to learn, because it hardly goes one or two days without something new happening. The small signals like the O2 sensor not getting throught the 60-way connector was my first problem which meant it was always running in open loop. But recently I had the engine totally overhauled and the transmission too. The trouble I have now is that it will run beautifully for miles then you come to a town where you have to slow down and suddenly the engine won't idle .. it dies. You can start it up and it will stop again. Well after I let it sit for awhile and wiggle all the wires and so forth it will run ok again for quite awhite before it starts the same thing again. There are no trouble codes showing. Thanks.
I finally replace both throttle sensors and it fixed the problem. The truck
is running very nicely now. But it sure was a weird problem for a while ..
something like an engine having an erratic fit. I found out that I could
initiate the problem by driving along slowly and tapping on the gas
pedal with my foot, which led to replacing the throttle position sensor
and idle stop sensor.

I would assume that the wires you are wiggling probably were overlooked or possibly defective. Sounds like you have had the mechnical parts replaced and possibly not the electrical harness(es) replaced. They tend to cost alot, sometimes you can find damage if it's obvious, other times it's in the connectors.
